Seven Supplemented To Triple Crown Series

Summer Is Tomorrow | DHRIC/AK

Seven 3-year-olds, headed by recent G2 UAE Derby runner-up Summer Is Tomorrow (Summer Front), have been supplemented to the 2022 Triple Crown series for a fee of $6,000 prior to the late closing date this past Monday, Mar. 28.

Owned by Michael and Negar Burke, Summer Is Tomorrow is a two-time winner from seven starts in Dubai, having won a Feb. 25 allowance by 8 1/4 lengths going seven furlongs prior to his effort in the UAE Derby, in which he set the pace and was run down late by Japan's GI Kentucky Derby hopeful Crown Pride (Jpn) (Reach the Crown {Jpn}). The bay, trained by Bhupat Seemar, earned $200,000 and 40 Kentucky Derby points for the effort.

Azure Coast (Street Sense), who came from the clouds to win the G3 UAE 2000 Guineas at Meydan Feb. 11, has also been supplemented by owner Vladimir Kazakov and trainer Pavel Vashchenko. A distant ninth behind Summer Is Tomorrow in the UAE Derby, Azure Coast has yet to amass any Derby points.

The other late Triple Crown nominees include Bye Bye Bobby (Quality Road), second in Sunday's GIII Sunland Derby; O Captain (Carpe Diem), third in the GII Fasig-Tipton Fountain of Youth S.; Shake Em Loose (Shakin It Up), winner of Laurel's Private Terms S.; recent Gulfstream allowance winner Skippylongstocking (Exaggerator); and Win the Day (Midshipman), who graduated at third asking in his dirt debut going a mile at Santa Anita Mar. 6.

The seven supplements take the number of 2022 Triple Crown nominees to 321. Any horse that has yet to be nominated at the first two stages can become Triple Crown eligible through supplemental payments made at the time of entry for the GI Kentucky Derby ($200,000), GI Preakness S. ($150,000) and GI Belmont S. ($50,000).
